Mr Loganathan performed a hernia repair for me. After examining me, he clearly explained the procedure and any risks there may have been. He ensured that I was happy with the procedure and risks before I agreed to go ahead. The procedure went ahead only 3 weeks after the first consultation and was very successful. Six weeks later I visited Mr Loganathan again for him to review the results of his handiwork which we both agreed was excellent. Throughout, Mr Loganathan and the team at Claremont were friendly, professional and very helpful.

Mr Loganathan explained clearly the procedure that I required. He was kind and caring throughout my treatment. He recommended that I should have robotic surgery as the healing process is quicker and less invasive. I am grateful that I had this type of surgery and would highly recommend it.

When I first met Mr Loganathan at the consultation I was very nervous of the outcome and the operation. But he was so pleasant and explained the procedure from the beginning to the end in such an assured and in a positive way that I was reassured going forward with the operation. He made a beautiful job of the operation, the scare is almost gone after 6 weeks. The visits on the ward from Mr Loganathan were always reassuring and the nurses absolutely brilliant, 100% care and attention. Thank you very much.
